ATLANTA- Rosella Winfrey is used to digging up soil, rocks and plants during her favorite pastime of gardening. Recently, she uncovered a $50,000 lottery win. Ms. Winfrey played Jumbo Bucks Classic, a Georgia Lottery instant game, and won the top prize.
The Gibson resident was at home when she scratched her ticket. “I was jumping up and down,” Ms. Winfrey describes.
Ms. Winfrey, 46, plans to use her winnings to pay bills.
The winning ticket was purchased at Jet Food Store #0030. The store is located on Main Street in Gibson.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.6 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program; a statewide, voluntary pre-kindergarten program for four-year-olds; and a wide range of technological and capital upgrades for the state’s schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities and public libraries.
